The Murder Capital release new track ‘More Is Less’

It comes before their debut album ‘When I Have Fears’ is released this Friday.

With their debut album ‘When I Have Fears’ coming out on Friday (16th August), Dublin’s The Murder Capital have shared a new track to get us all excited in the form of ‘More Is Less’. A raucous cut, the live version went viral earlier this year, signalling the quintet’s breakthrough 2019.

“I don’t really follow people’s career paths or whatever, but it’s just the way it’s landed,” vocalist James McGovern told us in April about the track’s viral success. “We released the ‘More Is Less’ video and suddenly got loads of attention. There wasn’t any big plan hatched to crack the industry or some shit.”
